Micropolitics of Noise. A Sound Art Performance
Micropolitics of Noise
A Long Durational Interactive Sound Art Performance. 324 hours / 7 weeks / 8 hours a day
Commissioned and Curated by Neon.gr & The Marina Abramovic Institute (MAI)
The acoustic ecology and the soundscape of modernity meets the human body. A performance-experiment that embodies the micropolitics and social affects of sound. The social, physical and psychological affects of sound as a form of violence remind us that conscious emotion is unnecessary in producing fear responses.
Lambros Pigounis creates a long durational situation in which his body is exposed to subsonic vibrational forces, triggered by the presence of people around him. Left in a state of fragmented threat for seven weeks, the body unconsciously experiences three kinds of fear-induced reactions: fight – flight – freeze.
The performance Micropolitics of Noise is not suitable for people with medical implants (such as retinal implants, pacemakers, defibrillators, and artificial joints), and pregnant women.
